Walking in Transylvania, fairy tale county

Hiking with Avril and Nina, what a wonderful tour! I met Avril 8 years ago, on a strong winter, when we walked up to Curmatura hut in Piatra Craiului national park. This year, together with Nina, she came to see how our mountains look in the summer time! As you can clearly see in the photos, they look very well! We hiked in the Bucegi mountains, Bran county and it’s high hills. We also went to Magura, the fairy tale village from our winter trip that Avril remembered vividly; the snow had been so high that the bread was transported by a hors… (>>>)

Walking Irish ladies in Romania

After a brief but impressive trip with Iulian in 2008 in the Bucegi mountains I vowed to return to Romania for a longer trip sometime. I finally got to do so last week. We are just back from a wonderful week’s hiking in the Bucegi mountains with Iulian. Iulian is a professional and knowledgeable guide. His knowledge of the mountains, the culture, the people and the way of life in Romania made our trip really enjoyable. His love and appreciation of his country is inspirational. His photography leaves us with a wonderful catalogue of … (>>>)

Romania trail running experience, Bucegi mountains

In August 2016 we went out six friends with a lot of fear and excitement on a trip to the mountains of Romania. We are all experienced “city runners” but with little trail running experience and even less mountainous running experience. After a number of inquiries we made contact with several local guides one of them was Julian – A local tour guide that sits in the city of Brasov. From the first mail Julian seem very serious and professional. This impression only grew stronger with the progress of the planning of the trip.

The trip was plann… (>>>)

Love mountain biking.

Testimonial: Dear Horia, Thank You for beautiful four days mountain biking trip. In spite I am 59 years old, Your advice substantially improved my riding.

You helped me to understand “What the mount biking is about”.We had a chance to discover beauty of Carpathian nature, good natural or bio food and to meet nice and important people. Y… (>>>)

Young at heart: mountain biking the trails at 60

I don’t know about you, but I am pretty sure about me: it’s like Lubo and Milo that I want to be when I am sixty years old. On bike, riding single trails, sweating uphill and shouting downhill. Visiting new places, new countries, new mountains.

I read somewhere that the secret to have a healthy heart and a fresh mind is to do something that scares you a little in every day of your life. Well, we definitely provided enough testing moments for Milo and Lubo during the four days of mountain biking we organized for them this August. Th… (>>>)

American guests, hiking in Romania

Our 6 day, 5 night trekking adventure in Romania was fantastic. Iulian picked a good route for us to see different parts of the Carpathian mountains. Every day we enjoyed beautiful scenery and great vistas. One of the highlights of the experience was our guide, Iulian. He is very knowledgeable and was clearly excited to share both the beautiful Romanian landscape and the wonderful culture with our family. He accommodated our every need and his easy going nature made him an absolute pleasure to spend time with. We have been on many guide… (>>>)

American family hiking in Romania, enjoying nature

They came from California to visit her family in Berlin. And because 10 years ago, if I remember well, I was hiking with some of their friends, Tanja and her family decide to spent a week hiking in Romania. Even if our plans were changed by the weather conditions, we were lucky enough where we hiked in Bucegi mountains and in Fagaras mountains. The kids were fantastic! They enjoy every single moments of their holiday, even playing on rain! And sure, we stayed one night in Ucea de Sus village, my grandmother village, on the 1892 renovated hou… (>>>)

Split boarding tour in Romania, Bucegi mountains

Wir waren jetzt das zweite Mal mit Iulian unterwegs, und das sagt eigentlich schon alles. Die Organisation war auch dieses Mal komplett reibungslos, auch wenn wir wetterbedingt das Programm ein wenig umgestellt haben. Durch eine ungewöhnliche Wärmeperiode gab es diesmal recht wenig Schnee, aber durch seine Ortskenntnis hat Iulian immer wieder schönen Schnee für uns gefunden.

Super ist auch, dass er als Guide seine Touren jeden Tag perfekt am Können und der Kondition seiner Gäste ausrichtet. So ist man immer gefordert, jedoch n… (>>>)

Mountain biking in Brasov city area and Bucegi mountains

If there is something unique about mountain biking in Brasov, Romania, it’s the diversity of landscape and trails you can experience in a relatively small area. It’s always a pleasure to see the excitement of our guests when they witness with their own eyes the smooth transition from forest to alpine teritory, from limestone to conglomerate rock formations, from busy mountain resorts to quiet pastures. from high ridges down to mountain gorges.

Bucegi Circuit, our most popular six-days mountain biking tour, offers g… (>>>)

Ski touring in Bucegi mountains and Poiana Brasov ski resort

Middle of February was not so very friendly with us. Weather was good, plenty of sun and good weather but pretty windy and the snow was pretty much packed in wind layers, so not very easy to enjoy a ski tour. But even like this we find our ways to beautiful places to enjoy viewing the surrounding of the South East of Transylvania, Bran county, Piatra Craiului mountains. After Bucegi mountains we visited Peles castle and Brasov city, our home town, and we were for two day skiing on Poiana Brasov ski resort. Slopes and snow quality were outsta… (>>>)
